Disable active directory users' showing the group memberships of other users

Right now, if a user adds someone in the "To:" field in Outlook, then goes into the properties of the added user, they can see the "Member Of" tab and all group memberships of the other user.  Is there a way to globally disable or remove the tab for all users or only a group of users?  Or just not have the tab populated?

Maybe this is an AD setting or policy that needs changed - if it is possible to even change it.  I assume this is related to a normal user being able to "read" AD.

We are currently using AD 2003 and 2010 in mixed mode and in the middle of an Exchange 2003 to 2010 Migration.

Thanks for your input!

You cannot remove that particular tab.  It is by design.

For each group you wish to hide set DENY on Read Members permission for Everyone group through Security tab of ADUC

Thanks for your comments.  Govvy, I can deny the read permission to the group memberships, but a user can still see the Group Names that someone is a member of.  We already hide the group members, but we don't even want a user to see the group names that someone is associated with.

Any more ideas?

I found this article that looks like it will remove the tab from Outlook - http://www.windowsitpro.com/article/exchange-server-2003/hiding-tabs-on-the-user-properties-dialog-box

It changes the global Exchange template.

What if you were to do the following as an alternative (put your members in dist. group and then hide all members of it).

Thanks everyone, but I found the specific method that I requested already.  It is similar for Exchange 2010 also: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124525.aspx.
